a grassroots campaign to politics, which is what progressives have been begging him to do now for a while. it seems to be working. all the hash tags and all the my 2 k has tags has gotten up to 13,000 tweets per hour. not every one of them is, hey great idea, mr. president. a lot of them are coming from people who are conservatives saying whatever it is that they're saying. the point is he's in touch with the people. he's not living in a cocoon like he did in the first term. >> cenk: when they ask how would you spend that $200,000 that you wouldn't get if we didn't get to the fiscal cliff, he's getting a bazillion responses. >>> we talk about climate change on the show, and i want to go to stunning numbers. in 2011 we had 38.2 billion tons of carbon dioxide released. this is the most stunning number now. we released 2.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide every second last year. every second of every day. that's amazing. now one other thing about this, the protocol that they signed back in 1997, the goal was reduce emissions by 5%. what happened since they signed that and we never ratified.
